Purpose of the Job
Due to an accident in 1987 when I was 9 years old, I am now paralysed on my right side. Although, my long-term memory is very good, I can have problems with my short term memory. I need help to prepare home-cooked meals, do housework and to enjoy socialising in the wider community. Occasionally I need help to visit doctors and hospitals for appointments.
I do not need any help with personal hygiene.
